On October 9, Logan Paul opened up a rare 1st Edition Pokemon booster box worth $216k. Over 300,000 viewers tuned into the livestream as the YouTuber pulled a shadowless Charizard worth $85k. Here is every notable TCG card that was pulled, and who won the most.

In September, Logan Paul surprised millions of fans when he revealed he’d spent an “estate’s worth” of money on Pokemon cards. The 25-year-old influencer explained that the Nintendo collectibles had become the new “art” worth investing in.

To celebrate, he bought a rare 1st Edition booster box of the 1999 base set, and sold each pack individually to buyers such as YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson. On October 9, the star opened the box live, and here are the results of what was pulled during the epic event.

Over 300k viewers tuned in to watch the YouTuber open up the incredibly rare Pokemon booster box. The star had sold each pack individually for $11,111, which netted him around a $200k profit.

Several major cards were pulled during the livestream, such as the yellow cheek Pikachu which can fetch $3–$5k, a Chansey worth up to $30k, and a Charizard estimated to be worth $65-85k. They’re worth even more because they are “shadowless” – cards that don’t have a shadow running down the right hand side of the art box.

Given that these are all pristine 1st Edition, even common cards are worth something. And of course, the values listed below are estimates which will ultimately be determined by grading. Here is everything that was pulled during the live event, and who – if notable – won them.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
